Hello I think you r overtreating your son's diarrhoea. 90% cases do not require antibiotcs. Get his stool checked from a reputed lab, if there is secondary lactose intolerance, he needs to b given lactose free milk 4 few days. Continue zinc 4 atleast 15 days & make sure that he does not get dehydrated by giving him o. R. S.
Take care of possible source of infection. Improve personal hygeine. Give ors containing zinc frequently with usual diet.
